What's New

Version 2.1.0

New Features & Updates

• Shroud of the Phantasm - A new community-designed cape, the Shroud of the Phantasm seems to grant the wielder the favor of Wael, though the will of the God of Secrets is all but impossible to discern for certain. Wearers gain the ability to manifest illusory duplicates and are rarely, if the God of Secrets is watching, struck with bolts of understanding capable of turning the tide of battle. You can find this magical item hidden within Berkana's Observatory.
• Ability Tree Preview - Thanks to our programming team, the Class Ability Tree can now be viewed outside of the level up screen! This can be done from the Inventory/Character Sheet UI, or when recruiting a new companion.
• New Magran's Fires Challenges added - New challenges and old favorites have been added for players that want a difficult experience with a twist. These challenges can be found by clicking the head of Magran at the bottom of the Title Menu.
Skaen's Challenge
The Fog of War is greatly reduced around the Player's Character.
Torches can help increase the vision area.
Abydon's Challenge
Weapons and Armor now degrade during adventuring.
Weapons and Armor can be repaired for a price through the Enchanting Menu.
• Enchanting UI Update
The Enchanting Menu has received a visual re-work. Enchantment progression paths are now much clearer, and it should be easy to tell if a new enchantment will replace or rework an old enchantment.
• Steam Workshop Mod Support - Mods will now be supported through the Steam Workshop page. Check it out to see what unique changes the community is bringing to the world of Eora!
• Audio Combat Remixing - Our audio team has remastered in-game combat sounds, resolving a suite of bugs and generally improving the game as per community feedback:
Combat Chatter now provides more critical feedback and is easier to understand during combat.
Creatures have been tuned to spam sounds less
Ability audio has been tuned to react to other sounds (i.e. gets softer when combat chatter is playing)
And much more!
• New Backer Items and Pets - Additional Backer Pets and Backer Items have been implemented to the game including:
5 Backer items added
14 Backer Pets added

Editors’ Notes

Captain your ship and immerse yourself in the unexplored archipelago area of Deadfire.

Previous issues fixed — works great! OMG—back in Eora!


I’m taking time out of my day to tell people that the App store version is working fantastic on my 2017 MacBook Pro. The gameplay has been improved and the graphics are stunning. I really appreciate that much of the story is narrated as it draws you right into the world. Some of the options are far more complex, but I don’t see that as a detraction as it will result in a definitive replayability factor.

My congratulations go out to this fine game’s production team and I want you to know that you’ve now made my wife very angry—100% of my free time will be spent in front of screen for the next few months!

This is simply a superb game and you really don’t see anything else like it in the App Store.

Tremendous detail & deep story


I had to throttle back the frame rate only because my iMac is a mid 2016 retina… I understand the physics… that’s OK. the play and involvement is wonderful very engaging, take the time to savor the beautifully designed and rendered scenes… the motion is smooth and intuitive as is the interface… No I do not work for these people, I am an old ex Amiga user; used to good gameplay, and then on hi powered PC’s etc., this is a truly great product for the Mac… Try to imagine interacting in a great fantasy adventure book…. that is exactly what this is.
